100 Hour Individual Speciality Study

Traditional Ayurveda Studies in India

Dancing Shiva offers specialized studies of Ayurveda in the traditional approach or gurukul in India. This provides students the opportunity to learn Ayurveda in an authentic environment in the Indian motherland.

These 21 day programs are offered at the TanMan Ayurvedic Research center in the rural mountain areas of Bhukum Pune, in the southern state of Maharastra. Both Dancing Shiva and TanMan share twenty-year affiliate-partnership relationship that provides students the opportunity to gain 100 hours of certification in integral Ayurveda and Yoga.

Note: This type of study can also be added with focus on a specific area of speciality for those students that have completed the 150 Hour India Ayurveda Program or the Ayurveda Counselor Program which takes place in USA. In other words... this additional 100 hours of study is an opportunity for students to increase their knowledge in any particular area of interest with the intention of developing a speciality and gaining greater credibility in that particular aspect of Ayurveda.
